Second Chance Review: Fox's Frankenstein Drama Is Dead on Arrival

Crimes of the week are wrapped up with the haphazardness of toddlers tossing their Fisher-Price people into a toy box after mommy says it’s dinner time. Heck, even the title of the show (fka The Frankenstein Code fka Lookinglass) has proven to be as changeable as it is vague.

Man Up!: ABC Pulls (Essentially) Cancelled Sitcom

ABC has pulled their ratings-challenged sitcom, Man Up!, from the schedule. While their pulling the surely-cancelled series certainly isn't much of a surprise, the timing is a bit odd.

Starring Christopher Moynihan, Dan Fogler, Mather Zickel, Henry Simmons, Teri Polo and Amanda Detmer, Man Up! debuted on October 18th and attracted an underwhelming 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.78 million total viewers. The second week saw the demo drop by 17%, followed by a 10% decline in week three, and another 6% after that in week four. This week's installment, the show's eighth, hit a series low with a 1.6 in the demo and 4.82 million.

Man Up! has averaged a 1.9 in the 18-49 demo and 6.44 million. It's the network's second-lowest rated show this season (just below Body of Proof and just above already-cancelled Charlie's Angels). On our ABC ratings
